Year 3

Summer 2017

 

It's the final count down!

The Summer term promises to be as action packed as the last 2. Please come and join us for our final class assembly on Friday 30th June 2017. 

In topic the focus will be on the Stone Age, Maths will focus on measure and in Science pupils will learn about Light and Shadow. As always, to support their learning, lessons will be planned to enable pupils to learn in a variety of ways- through practical experiments, group work, role play and independently.

News Updates...

The Year 3 class assembly will be held on Friday 31st March 2017. Children will get their lines about a week in advance in order to rehearse them. We greatly encourage you to come to this assembly and see what pupils have been doing during the Spring term.

 

On the afternoon of Tuesday 14th February 2017, pupils were entertained and informed about internet safety. I think we can safely say that pupils have a clear understanding about both the benefits of the world wide web, but also how they can keep themselves protected.

 

Tuesday 24th January- Pupils were lucky enough to have had a visit from the NSPCC. They learnt how to keep themselves safe in a variety of situations and are well informed of who they can contact if they ever have any safety worries. Check out the pictures below!

 

Spring  2017

 

Happy New Year! I hope you are all feeling rested after the Christmas break. This term pupils will be focusing on "Animals including Humans" in topic. Amongst other things, this will look at the need of a good diet, muscle function and the use of the skeleton. 

 

Today, 3rd March, year 3 held their "Dahlicious dress up day", in support of the "Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity". Thank you to all of the parents and children who supported us in either dressing up or buying a raffle ticket. A special thank you goes to the parents, children and adults who helped to make the amazing cakes that were raffle prizes. Everyone was amazed by the talent and commitment to get everything done.  All the money will go towards helping children and families who are very sick. We had a brilliant day and were very impressed by all of the costumes.

 

On the morning of Monday 27th March 2017, pupils will take part in the Tesco Fuel for Food program. Letters will be sent out after the half term for this.

 

Please don't forget to send pupils in with their homework books on Tuesday as work is stuck in on Wednesday afternoon. If pupils don't have their books, they will be sent home with the homework on paper and are expected to glue it in at home themselves. All homework is due in on Tuesdays.

 

 

Autumn 2

We had an action packed Autumn 1 and Autumn 2 will be no different!

 We enjoyed our Spooky Day, dressing up in our outfits and tucking into a spooky lunch, Macmillan Cancer where pupils enjoyed a delicious cake after break and many different religious visitors.

On Tuesday 18th October we were so lucky to have Olympic diver James Denny in school who spoke to us about the importance of working hard to achieve our goals.  All pupils took part in 4 activities- thank you to all parents and carers who sponsored them.

 

We’ve already had a visit from Rabbi David Coleman who came with pupils from his school. They wowed us with their rap about the Jewish religion and gave us a whistle stop tour of their 613 rules to abide by!

 

Come and join our first class assembly on Friday 18th November where the children cannot wait to share with you what they have been learning. This is also Children in Need day so we are encouraging everyone to wear something spotty.

On Monday 28th September, Year 3 pupils will be going to Tesco, Walkden to end the Plants topic. Even though it officially ended in Autumn 1, it will be great for them to consolidate their learning.

 

December 2016

What a busy month we are having!

Thursday 15th December is Christmas fair donation day as well as non-uniform day. We will also go to church for the carol service in the afternoon. Just remember children coming to the service at 6pm need to be in their uniform.

Christmas jumper day is this Friday 16th December. Don't forget to wear your favourite Christmas top and donate £1 to a very worthwhile charity.

Tuesday 20th December is Year 3 and 4 Christmas party day. Look out for the invitation that will be sent home and make sure children come in their best party clothes!

Wednesday 21st December is the Christmas pantomime and we finish school at 2:30pm on Thursday 22nd December just in time for Christmas.

Last but not least, we have been visited by our very own Elf on the shelf! We're keeping an eye as he gets up to his mischievous tricks- share what he gets up to through the photos we post.

 

For a snap shot of what your child is doing in class, please keep an eye on “Our year in pictures” and video where we regularly post videos and pictures of what we’re doing in class.

Welcome to Year 3...Autumn 1

 

Welcome back! I hope you've all had an action packed but relaxing summer and that your children are excited about coming back to school. In July, Mrs Seddon and I spent time with the class getting to know the children and outlining the expectations of the Year 3 curriculum. We are now really looking forward to getting started with the class. 

 

This year’s class charity will be the “Roald Dahl Children’s Charity”. As it is the 100 year anniversary, do look out for different activities taking place in your local area to commemorate the 13th September. In addition to this, we will celebrate this fantastic charity as well as Roald Dahl in class. Look out for further information to know how you can get involved.

 

Visit this website regularly to stay informed as to what your child is learning about in the classroom- I will share good work here.


Finally, the 'Autumn Term Newsletter' is available to download by scrolling down. Also available are the 'Year 3 End of Year Expectations', 'Homework Timetable' and 'Year 3 Spelling Wordlists' documents.
